The International Association
for Urban Climate (IAUC) is an organization seeking membership from those
with scientific, scholarly and technical interests and responsibilities in:
- the climatology and
meteorology of built-up areas,
- exchange processes
between the urban "surface" and the overlying boundary layer,
- urban air quality,
- wind and turbulence in
- measurement, modeling
and remote sensing of urban atmospheric and surface characteristics at all
- micro-scale processes and
patterns associated with urban landscape elements (buildings, canyons,
parks, roads etc),
- building climatology,
- biometeorology and
bioclimatology within urban ecosystems, including human comfort and
- the inclusion of urban
atmospheric processes into design and planning and the modelling of
- the representation of
urban landscapes in models of climate at meso-scales.
The IAUC sponsors urbclim,
an email distribution list devoted to the above topical areas and
closely-related ones. For more information on
